1. If you had to pick one track which solidified your love for electronic music early on what would it be?
LOM: Great question! The true is that my beginning with electronic music was in early age in my house, I used to listen music, bands like Depeche mode, Underword. When I was a teen, I started to listen music like originals mix from Bedrock, Global Underground with my own. I remember my first Moonpark in 2003 with Hernan Cattaneo who was playing the track of John creamer and Stephane K– Forget the world, a track who changed my style in the music, doing the progressive house my favorite style.
2. What was your first and last DJ gig?
LOM: My first gig was in a nightclub of my city. In this days, I’m working hard in my studio to create new tracks but I love to come back to the stages like DJ.
3. What was the first and last record you purchased?
LOM: The first album that I buy was “Esperanza” of Guy J and the last one was “Reality Addendum” of Henry Saiz. Two greatest producers and big inspirations to me.
4. What would you say is the highlight of your career thus far?
LOM: After the last releases in “Particles”, I think that my last release “Analogue” in 3rd Avenue had a wonderful support to me but I’m just starting on this and I think I have a way to go.
5. Tell us something about yourself that might surprise people?

6. Who are some of the best undiscovered talents in your eyes?
LOM: I think that Juan Deminicis have a great present like Pedro Aguiar to. I like a lot they sounds!
7. Which producers consistently inspire you?
LOM: Without any guys, I love the work of Guy J, Henry Saiz, Robert Babicz, John Digweed, Guy Gerber, Hernan Cattaneo and King Unique among other artists, but with Guy J, I feel identified with the style of his music, he is a great inspiration to me.
8. What artist or track would you love to remix? and who would you love to be remixed by?
LOM: I would love to make a remix a track of Guy J and he make a remix of one of my tracks.
9. Record labels are a dime a dozen these days and the majority of people feel most of them are mediocre music factories. Which ones if any standout for you?
LOM: Yes, without doubt, I believe that is true, most of the labels are poor in searching for music to edit, prefer the quantity and not quality. Labels like Lost & Found, microCastle, 3rd Avenue are examples of good job. 🙂
